The Mold Carnival, recognised as the largest one-day free event in Flintshire, is poised to once again enthral visitors on the town’s recreation fields, on Sunday, July 16.

Running from 11am to 6pm, the eagerly anticipated event boasts a packed programme of free entertainment, courtesy of the diligent efforts of the Carnival committee.

A standout attraction for the day is set to be the 12ft high and 22ft long prehistoric resident, Zeus the GIANT T-REX.

Making his formidable presence known, Zeus will grace Kendricks Field three times throughout Carnival day, promising a sight that would be hard for any visitor to miss.

Rejoining the main stage line-up are Mold Carnival favourites and Britain’s Got Talent alumni, Richard & Adam Johnson.

The brothers, who claimed global success after their third-place finish on BGT, have since had a number one album, ‘The Impossible Dream’, and several sell-out UK tours.

Their string of success also includes a top-five album, ‘At The Movies’, and a top-ten album, ‘Believe’.

Over at the Rec, crowds can expect to be wowed by ‘Pedal Power vs Parkour’, the only show of its kind in the UK.

The innovative stunt display merges the exceptional skill, balance, and power of bike riders with the finesse of a gymnast or parkour athlete.

These athletes aim to perform the latest tricks, pushing the limits of physical possibility to win over the crowd.

A myriad of local talents will entertain on Kendricks Field’s main stage, including over 400 community performers from Buckley Cheerleaders, Urban Fusion, Acro Squad, Dance Maniax, and Black Veil Tribal.

The day also features the Grand Final of Time2Shine, the Carnival’s popular talent competition, local choirs, and the band, The Trigger Hounds.

DJ Cookie, a popular Children’s Entertainer, and an array of beloved characters such as Spider-Man, The Hulk, Tinkerbell, Ariel, Buzz & Woody, will be there to delight attendees of all ages.

Jane Evans, Mold Town Council Events and Community Engagement Officer, said the committee has worked hard to ensure the day is filled with fantastic entertainment and activities.

“It’s free entry with lots of free entertainment to enjoy and we really do pride ourselves on trying to offer something for everyone, all ages and all abilities,” she said.

The Carnival parade, led by Cambria Band, will kick-off at 10.30 am from Griffiths Square Car Park, proceeding down the Upper High Street onto Earl Road and onto Maes Bodlonfa Fields.

Road closures will be in place along the route for approximately 45 minutes.

Jane concluded by expressing gratitude towards the local business community, which provides vital sponsorship, making the Mold Carnival possible. Businesses interested in supporting this cherished community event can contact the council for sponsorship packages ranging from £50 to £500.
